IS TAMPA BAY SEARCHING FOR A CENTER? You may not think center is a big need for the Buccaneers. But look again. John Wade could become a free agent and Matt Lehr will be an unrestricted free agent. If both depart, that would leave the Bucs with the inexperienced Dan Buenning as their potential starter. Bucsblitz.com's Matthew Postins talked to Notre Dame C John Sullivan who told Postins he's met with the Bucs and had an interesting observation about how the Bucs are treating the situation. You'll want to read what Sullivan had to say.
TIGHT ENDS ARE TALKING, BUT NOT WORKING OUT. The Buccaneers may be without both Anthony Becht and Jerramy Stevens, as both could depart in free agency. It's unclear if the Bucs will make an effort to re-sign either, but it is clear they're looking at tight ends. Bucsblitz.com found out the Bucs have spoken to Michigan State TE Kellen Davis. But the big-ticket items won't be working out this weekend. But they did talk to Matthew Postins on Thursday and both of them said they want to be perceived as complete tight ends, not just pass-catching tight ends. Can they do it? We'll enlighten you in this piece.
THEY'VE MEET, NOW WHERE DO THESE PROSPECTS FIT WITH THE BUCS? We've already told you that the Bucs have met with John Sullivan and Kellen Davis so far this week.
